29 August – 5 September 2020
The lovely and caring Maria Boox, with over 30 years yoga experience, loves the Yoga Rocks atmosphere. She’s delighted to return to the South of Crete for her yearly retreat. We love having Maria with us for her heart felt take on the special and unique vibe of the Ashtanga method.
First qualifying with the Iyengar family, she found her true path in Ashtanga Yoga and was a direct student of Sri K Pattabhi Jois, blessed and authorized to teach by him for many years.
After establishing, owning and running one of Sweden’s first Ashtanga shalas for ten years, Maria opted for the open road teaching retreats and teacher intensives in beautiful locations, while nurturing her practice and encouraging others. She teaches traditional Ashtanga and much more, regularly visiting India – the home of yoga.
Morning classes are traditional Mysore style with extra help for those starting to feel their way through the practice. Three afternoons in the week there will be more leisurely explorations of other aspects of the physical practice as well as yoga philosophy and pranayama in the tradition of Kaivalyadhamma. Having recently explored this on a a number of retreats with Shri. O.P Tiwari, Maria is excited to share deeper pranayama as part of the afternoon sessions.
